When we say Haute Couture, Christian Dior is one of the first and the most anticipated fashion giants that everyone is looking forward to seeing! Thus, the latest Paris Couture fashion week is no exception, and what the absolutely astounding and incredibly luxurious Christian Dior Couture fall/winter 2014-2015 collection came up with can’t be simply characterized with a bunch of words and praises. It’s something beyond all that and beyond human imagination, introducing the most successful and perfect stylish mishmashes of the old and the new, described with the synthesis of traditional and innovative.
Looking through the pieces the chic and retro feel of the times of Marie Antoinette could be felt throughout the show. Thus, that’s what every single piece starting from the very first one can be described with and if we were to speak about the latter, the first thing we could note is the interesting texture and the sweet tone of white, completing the curious and charming design patterns and the minimalistic shape put with a voluminous finish and a sassy V-curve, and finished off with the sensual sleeveless design.
Still, the most revolutionary looks come further, presented with shapes like the rounded bottoms of the coming range of dresses, having the most diverse patterns and interpretations, ranging from florals to abstracted and equally memorable variants. The similar sleeveless shape and the silver accessories nicely complete these looks. What’s especially catchy in this line is that a similar volume has been used even for pants turning them into super huge wide-leg garments with uber exaggeratedly colossal legs and nice floral patterns put on the white background.
Still, the classic looks like jumpsuits, top and pants combos and more wearable dresses of tea length are also present here, coming with a diversity of vibes and designs ranging from minimalistic to traditional, with cuffed sleeves, drapings, jewels, and even zippers. The color palette gets diversified here as well also including some milky, beige, khaki, and pale blue tones. The mysterious black, pinky, yellow, and other shades also form the other aspect of the uniqueness of the Christian Dior Couture fall/winter 2014-2015 collection. The same can be said about the contrastive color combinations put with one-piece one-shade principle, as well as the striking range of floor length fur pieces, featuring different shades, yet equally comfortable and fear-not-the-cold looks.
The sporty vibes are also here, especially well put with the asymmetrical hems of the skirts and the design solutions like pleats mainly used for garments of mini length. The ethnic inspired outerwear garments featuring various bright colors and big range of beads and sequins also manage to catch our attention. The same can be said about the cute floral patterns put with black and white and the nice traditional chiffon made glam, exemplified with a range of straight and nicely patterned alternatives. The details like kimono cuts on the sleeves and the catchy combos of black and white with red stiletto heels can also be included in the list of the top looks.
Finally, the range of soft and mild shades combined with sheer chiffon layers are what the Christian Dior Couture fall/winter 2014-2015 collection is finished up with, securing the next glamorous and unforgettable record of creativity and chic in the history of this legendary fashion house!
